Democrats By Wide Margin Support Trudeau’s Move Against Truckers

Democrats widely support Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s handling of the “Freedom Convoy” protests, according to a Trafalgar Group poll released Tuesday.

A majority of respondents, 55.3%, said they disapprove of Trudeau’s handling of the protests, while 35.1% said they approve. When polling Democrats only, a whopping 65.7% said they approve of Trudeau’s handling while 17.2% said they disapprove.

Republicans offered a stark contrast, with 87.3% saying they disapprove and 8.1% saying they approve. Among those who offered no party affiliation, 74.4% disapprove.

The poll was conducted among 1,080 likely general election voters between Feb. 18 to Feb. 20. There was a 2.99% margin of error.

In an unprecedented move, Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act on Feb. 14. The move allowed him to take additional steps to quell the protests against mandates in Canada. With the invocation of the act, Trudeau said police would be given additional tools to strengthen their ability to impose fines or imprisonment on those who do not comply with orders.

The government could then ensure essential services are rendered, such as towing vehicles blocking roadways, while permitting financial institutions to regulate and prohibit the use of property to fund or support illegal blockades.

“This is not a peaceful protest,” Trudeau said. “The blockades are harming our economy and endangering public safety. This is hurting workers who rely on these jobs to feed their families.”

“I want to be very clear, the scope of these measures will be time limited, geographically targeted and reasonable and proportional to the threats they are meant to address. This is about keeping Canadians safe.”

The Canadian Civil Liberties Association publicly opposed Trudeau’s invocation, calling it a “threat” to democracy and civil liberties.

“The federal government has not met the threshold necessary to invoke the Emergencies Act. This law creates a high and clear standard for good reason: the Act allows government to bypass ordinary democratic processes. This standard has not been met,” the association said. “Emergency legislation should not be normalized. It threatens our democracy and our civil liberties.”

Since the invocation, dozens of protesters have been arrested. Some police officers on horseback were recorded trampling over protesters.

HART: Trudeau — ‘Crush’ Those Freedom Loving Mother Truckers!

The all-knowing, Teen Beat Magazine cover-looking son of Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, Justin Trudeau, made a boo-boo. He inherited his prime ministering business from his dad, so he thought things would be easy. The media gives lefties a pass, even if they enjoy dressing in blackface — a lot.

What the junior Trudeau did was to “mis-underestimate” (as “Dubya” Bush, our junior president, used to say), the power of the working people. Until now, the article of faith of those who inherit liberal-elite political positions is that if they just say that they are for the “little people,” the fools will buy it. No one holds them to account for what they actually do. “Words Matter; Actions Do Not” seems to be their creed.

Taking his cue from other hypocritical leftie leaders, Trudeau hid behind his political interpretation of “science” to impose draconian COVID measures on his subjects. He said that by making vaccines mandatory, he was the true hero. He decreed that those truckers, who drive alone in their truck cabs for a living, must get vaccinated so they do not get COVID.

Trudeau and Biden felt they needed to reassert their control over their voters to stop the disconcerting spike in personal freedoms.

Mad at this and other arrogant decisions made by the Prime Minister Junior on High, truckers in Canada formed the largest trucker convoy in history to protest. But the article of faith among woke libs is that the only protests allowed are the BLM kind, where many buildings burn and people die.

James Hoffa and other labor leaders showed their colors, or in this case colours, when they sided with their puppet masters in government rather than truckers. My dad was a truck driver for Campbell 66 back in the day. Their motto, when you could have interesting mottoes, was a camel on the side of his truck that said, “humping to please!” which was also the 1990 Arkansas gubernatorial campaign slogan for Bill Clinton. I learned from my dad to be nice to truckers; they drive the flyover country and know places where no one will find your body.

The old Mafia-like trucker unions cared about their trucker buddies. One of my dad’s trucker friends crossed the other truckers one time and they Tonya Harding’ed his leg, cutting half of it off. Just to make sure everyone remembered the incident, they made the guy go work at IHOP.

The way the corporate left-wing media covers protests is stark. If right-of-center Tea Party folks or truckers protest, they are “insurrectionists.” No one dies and they make their point, but somehow they are “terrorists,” “white supremacists” and “threats to democracy.” If you think about it, peaceful protest is the definition of democracy. Petulant politicians who cry and fake injury like a soccer player are the reasons the common man has to unite and make his reasoned point.

I get that truckers slowing down deliveries hurts the economy. But it makes the broader point, that they grease the wheels of the economy. Trudeau has declared martial law, so he has unchecked power.

Trudeau is getting his first real economics lesson. Without truckers, he could not get his steady supply of Al Jolson-brand blackface. Fittingly, he is down to just a little black shoe polish, just enough to put on two fingers so he can do a small mustache for himself.

Last year we honored health care workers. This year we should honor truckers. And next year under Biden we should honor Taco Bell, the only place you can still get gas for under $5.

The left somehow thinks they are so smart, powerful and concerned about you that they, and only they, can make health care decisions for you and for private enterprise. And they do have a monopoly on this since Democrats Bill Clinton, Andrew Cuomo and Harvey Weinstein perfected the construct of “No Jab, No Job” for female employees. Like many American corporations and now the Canadian government say to the truckers about the vaccine, “put this in your body, or you will never work in this industry again.” Again, this sounds like something Clinton, Cuomo and Weinstein may have said.

UN poised to launch global ban on speech that insults Muslims

Sharia-adherent nations have long “sought a determination from the United Nations that any criticism of Islam or Muslims is ‘Islamophobia’ and banned globally.’”

But somehow Westerners still generally refuse to acknowledge the real meaning and intent of the concept of “Islamophobia.” In short, it’s intended to promote the supremacy of the Sharia by discrediting and silencing critics of Islam. The UN declared its intention to become closer with the OIC years ago, and it has happened. Now:

Nations belonging to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and other governments adhering to Shariah law across the world are ramping up their new campaign with the United Nations to prohibit all speech that Muslims consider offensive.

This aggressive campaign is the logical next step following years of appeasement, thanks to politically correct Western leaders. There have been enough warnings. Now, the final stage for Western subjugation has arrived, and the more Westerners fight for their own right to the freedom of speech, the more aggressive the “Islamophobia” brigade will become, particularly in light of the fact that they have come this far through bullying, intimidation, deceit and manipulation. They’re not about to surrender now, as they have been encouraged by too many Western dhimmis surrendering to them.

Pakistan Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi incited more support to silence any opposition to Islam and its adherents – including speech condemning Islam for its scriptural inciting of terrorists to conduct jihad (holy war) on “infidels.”

Mainstream Muslim groups in the West share the message of Lodhi and routinely persecute those who call out the truth about Islam. Lodhi stated a common message which is now embraced across the West in describing the so-called consequences of those who offend Islam:

“An inevitable consequence is to fan the flames of bigotry, intolerance, anti-Muslim hatred and xenophobia”

An “inclusive political process for durable peace”  by rejecting “Islamophobia” is what Lodhi — and other stealth jihadists who are promoting the Sharia — have duped Westerners into believing as they promote Islamic anti-blasphemy laws.

“UN poised to launch global ban on all criticism of Islam,” by Michael F. Haverluck, One News Now, June 23, 2019:

Nations belonging to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and other governments adhering to Shariah law across the world are ramping up their new campaign with the United Nations to prohibit all speech that Muslims consider offensive.

“Islamist nations … long have sought a determination from the United Nations that any criticism of Islam or Muslims is ‘Islamophobia’ and banned globally,’” WND reported, noting that with 57 members, the OIC represents the largest voting bloc in the U.N. “But each time it has come up for a vote, more realistic arguments prevailed and the campaign never was legitimized.”

Pakistan putting on the pressure
After U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres unveiled the new “U.N. Strategy and Plan of Action” to fight so-called “hate speech” at a special meeting in the packed Economic and Social (ECOSOC) chamber, Pakistan Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi incited more support to silence any opposition to Islam and its adherents – including speech condemning Islam for its scriptural inciting of terrorists to conduct jihad (holy war) on “infidels.”

An inevitable consequence is to fan the flames of bigotry, intolerance, anti-Muslim hatred and xenophobia,” Lodhi proclaimed before ambassadors, senior diplomats and high-ranking U.N. officials, as quoted in a press release, according to MSN. “My Prime Minister Imran Khan has recently again called for urgent action to counter Islamophobia, which is today the most prevalent expression of racism and hatred against ‘the other.’”

Canadian PM’s “Elbowgate” Scandal Reveals Racism of Leftist Feminists by Christine Williams

Recently, the “Elbowgate” political scandal has been the news buzz in Canada, revolving around Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s so-called temper tantrum in the House of Commons. Leftists (and even some right-wingers) have fingered Trudeau as an abuser against women and as having an out-of-control temper because of an incident in the House of Commons in which he pushed past a group of disruptive New Democratic Party representatives and inadvertently elbowed a woman while doing so. This led to an apology by Trudeau under public pressure, and he demonstrated fine sportsmanship in doing so. The incident cut across party lines. I have been critical of Trudeau in the past, and there is much to criticize, but this is ridiculous. I wrote on my Facebook page:

Enough is enough. I applaud Trudeau. This cuts through partisan lines. If only these so-called feminist activists from the NDP could show 10% of that concern for the genuine abuse women of Islamist households face.

I was met with accolades, but also an opponent who wrote:

No way, he angrily stomped across the floor, manhandled a Conservative MP [a false charge, by the way] and elbowed a woman…this is called workplace abuse. He should have been thrown out of the House of Commons…

In a like-minded article, Trudeau even gets compared by a well-known CBC writer to former Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chrétien, who was known for his foul temper. Says the CBC’s Neil Macdonald: “Jean Chrétien once lost his temper and grabbed a protester by the throat, something that almost certainly would have landed a non-prime minister before a judge.” One need only ask the question: why even bring up Chrétien in this context? And what does Justin Trudeau’s black belt in Judo — also mentioned in Macdonald’s article — have to do with “Elbowgate”? One positive aspect of all this is that the leftist media is showing impartiality by attacking someone who is considered to be one of its own; yet the silence by the same media is deafening with regard to the context of the “Elbowgate” incident, which is a legitimate and indeed paramount aspect of this issue.

The West is legitimately a watchdog on matters of human rights, which encompasses religious rights and the rights of women, but in this context the media falls dramatically short in the hoopla it has stirred up against Trudeau over “Elbowgate”. While the leftist mass media has gone ape over Justin Trudeau’s so-called “abuse” of a woman, it has been unable to adequately prove intent. In watching the [below] video, it appears that Trudeau did indeed lose his temper with the NDP shenanigans in blocking Conservative MP’s from passing by. The video reveals Trudeau “trying to pull Conservative whip Gord Brown through a crowd of MPs….who were milling about in hopes of delaying a vote related to the bill on doctor-assisted dying, C-14.” Yet the elbowing is unintentional; an extremely minor incident.

And while they’re enraged over this, why do these far leftist feminists and their allies — who appear to be so concerned about the well-being of women — not concern themselves with the genuine abuse of women in Islamic states? This is not to say that we should not concern ourselves with genuine abuse of women in our own culture. We pride ourselves on human rights, but where is the outcry for those “other women” living abroad?

Leftists are quick to cry racism and abuse of women and to buy into the “Islamophobia” victimology, yet these so-called proponents of human rights and women’s rights care little — as they demonstrate by their own actions — about women in Islamic countries, which suggests a troubling brand of racism, as they show that they have little to no concern for the fact that these foreign women are subject to heinous forms of abuse, such as getting acid thrown in their faces for attempting to get an education; honor killings; female genital mutilation; and other forms of subjugation. Also, how many of these leftist feminists would be personally accepting of a head-to-toe face covering in scorching summer heat because men said they have to be covered? It is common knowledge in our culture that abused women echo the voice of the abuser: they speak when told; they are forced to believe what they are told; they exemplify what is permitted in the eyes of the abuser; they are happy if the abuser tells them they are happy, etc. Leftist feminists are manifesting the same traits by their silence over the abuse of Muslim women.

It is unconscionable that leftist feminists use a different standard for themselves than for those brown women abroad. They’re displaying racism and supremacism in their dichotomy of standards. Low expectations are the ultimate in racism. One has no expectations of dogs and other animals, so what message are they sending to abusers in Islamic states and to male proponents of anti-women ideology? Why are abuse and the subjugation of foreign women accepted among leftist “feminists”? Also unconscionable is their lack of concern for Christians and Yazidis abroad, among others. One 20-year-old woman states:

We were raped up to five times a day….One girl went to the bathroom and slit her wrist. When she did not die she cut her throat. The guards came to me and said you come and identify her – she’s your friend. I could not recognise her. There was so much blood on her face. The guards wrapped her in a blanket and threw her out with the rubbish.

Instead, they attack Trudeau because he inadvertently pushed through a crowd of hooligan NDPers, and the incident is referred to as an attack on women. We do and should have higher standards under our Western democracy in how we treat women; but until far-leftists become thinking citizens who are concerned about the human rights of all people, they display their own lack of genuine concern for those rights, and that threatens our own democracies. This is because Western states currently have immigration policies that allow people from societies that do not espouse our concepts of human rights to flood in. By not applying equal standards of human rights, which is an indication of their racism, leftists undercut the values of our own country and doom us to becoming dhimmis under the hegemony of Islam law, as we demonstrate our Western ignorance and fear to call out gender, religious and racial apartheid in the face of an Islamic agenda. There is an aggressive Islamic Project and a drive — both by stealthy and overtly hostile means — to conquer us for the Dar al Islam (House of Islam). Until that conquest, we are regarded as part of the Dar al Harb (House of War), and our double standards and ignorance condemn us to defeat.

VIDEO: Trudeau, ‘Canadian terrorist who ripped up his passport entitled to have his citizenship restored’

Naive and moronic Trudeau says a convicted Canadian terrorist who ripped up his passport is entitled to have his citizenship restored?

The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, engaged on Friday, March 11, 2016 with students from American University in Washington, D.C. in a question and answer session which touched on several topics, including the war on terror.

CIJnews reports:

The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, engaged on Friday, March 11, 2016 with students from American University in Washington, D.C. in a question and answer session which touched on several topics, includingthe war on terror.

Trudeau justified his decision to restore the citizenship to a convicted Canadian terrorist who ripped up his passport by saying that the policy of the previous Conservative government created two-tier citizenship, In which citizens who have dual citizenship may lose their citizenship if they are convicted of terrorism, treason, espionage or fighting against Canadian forces.

The following is the transcript of Trudeau’s answer (41:16-43:49):

“One of the key elements of that [opposing the proposed Quebec Charter of Values] and a point that I am so incredibly proud of Canadians is a moment in our election campaign where the governing Conservatives put forward a proposal to strip and actually [they] enacted it before the election to remove the citizenship from Canadian citizens convicted of terrorism, dual citizens in this case, which quite frankly they thought it is a great idea because here they were, these are people convicted of terrorism against our country or acts of war against our country and they are therefore forfeiting the right to be citizens which seems like a reasonable thing, again. On a front.

“But when you actually look at it and realize that means that someone convicted of terrorism with a dual citizenship could have different consequences under the law than a Canadian homegrown terrorist who has Canadian citizenship and is a six generation Canadian and therefore can’t have his citizenship removed at all.

You devalue the citizenship of everyone by making it conditional on good behaviour or non heinous behaviour which is ultimately the same thing.

“So, I found my self in a situation on stage against the former Prime Minister [Stephen Harper] arguing that, yes, a man who he [Harper] had just stripped his citizenship of for being convicted of a terrorist act should have his Canadian citizenship restored even though he had literally, perhaps even literally, ripped up his Canadian passport. And yet I stand here as a Prime Minister of Canada.

Only 3 in 10 Syrian families even want to be resettled in the West

Promises, promises! The do-gooder (paternalistic!) Liberals run into a bit of a problem. 70% of Syrian refugees don’t want to go to Canada.

The new Canadian prime minister, boy Trudeau, had campaigned on the promise to bring in 25,000 Syrian refugees to Canada by December 31, 2015.  They fell short by about 19,000! Here is one important reason why (you won’t see this mentioned by the NO borders agitators in the U.S. resettlement industry!).

Trudeau promises

Canadian PM Justin Trudeau

They want to stay in the Middle East!  

Can you believe it!  They like their culture and they hope to go home!

From the Globe and Mail:

Omayma al-Kasem is bold, forthright and speaks clearly and with confidence. She has completed four years of law school and volunteers as a mental-health worker with a Jordanian charity, and as such, is exactly the kind of Syrian refugee Canada wants to welcome. The trouble is, Ms. al-Kasem isn’t interested in coming.

The 26-year-old from Daraa, Syria, is one of a sizable number of Syrians turning down the chance to become permanent residents of Canada. According to UN figures, just three out of every 10 households contacted about resettlement in Canada go on to relocate.

“Some families are still hoping to return home, others are concerned about their ability to integrate into another country – including learn the language,” said Aoife McDonnell, an external relations officer at the UNHCR refugee agency in Jordan.

More here….

One of the unspoken truths that the resettlement industry is loathe to admit is that many refugees who do reach the West are unhappy and want to go home, but they are trapped in a land where they have discovered (to their great disappointment) that no streets are paved with gold.

VIDEO: Canada PM Trudeau states Islam exemplifies ‘our shared beliefs’

Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, sent a video message to the annual Reviving the Islamic Spirit convention held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (December 25-27) in Toronto.

Mr. Trudeau: Is it just like your beliefs?

“When your Lord inspired to the angels, I am with you, so strengthen those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved, so strike [them] upon the necks and strike from them every fingertip.” – Koran 8:12

Here are eighteen things that practicing, Koran-abiding Muslims believe. They are all part of Islamic Sharia Law. If a “moderate Muslim” won’t renounce Sharia Law, then he is practicing taqiyya, or holy deception against the infidels to spread Islam. Please note number 13.

  1. Muslims should kill anyone who insults Islam or Mohammed. (Koran.33;57-61).
  2. Muslims should kill all Muslims who leave Islam. (Koran.2;217/4;89/Bukhari.9;84-57).
  3. The Koran cannot be doubted. (Koran.2;1).
  4. Islam is the only acceptable religion. (Koran.3;85).
  5. Muslims must wage jihad on non-Muslims, even if they don’t want to. (Koran.2;216).
  6. Non-Muslims are pigs and apes. (Koran. 2;62-65/Koran.5;59-60/Koran.7;166).
    Muslims cannot be friends with non-Muslims. (Koran.5;51).
  7. Non-Muslims are sworn enemies of Muslims and Islam. (Koran.4;101).
  8. Non-Muslim women can be raped and kept as sex slaves by Muslim men. (Koran.4;3 & 24/5;89/23;5/33;50/58;3/70;30).
  9. Non-Muslims are the vilest of creatures deserving no mercy. (Koran.98;6).
  10. Muslims must terrorize non-Muslims. (Koran.8;12 &59-60/ Bukhari.4;52;220).
  11. Muslims must strike terror into the hearts of non-Muslims. (Koran.8;60).
  12. Muslims must lie to non-Muslims to strengthen and spread Islam. (Koran.3;28?16;106).
  13. Muslims should behead non-Muslims. (Koran.47;4).
  14. Muslims are guaranteed to go to heaven if they kill non-Muslims. (Koran.9:111).
  15. Marrying and divorcing pre-pubescent children is okay for Muslim men. (Koran.65;4).
  16. Wife beating is okay for Muslim husbands. (Koran.4;34).
  17. Raping wives is okay for Muslim husbands. (Koran.2;223).

Mr. Trudeau, We, Canadians, do NOT share the same beliefs with you. Your naive diplomacy will only cause division and bigger problems for Canada’s future.

An Open Letter to Mr. Justin Trudeau

You have stated numerous times during the election campaign and since the elections that you will listen to Canadians. I sincerely hope you not only listen but very seriously consider keeping the Iranian embassy from reopening

According to reports from Iran, a fourteen-year-old child bride committed suicide in Ahwaz, Iran by throwing herself out of the window at her parents’ house. She was pronounced dead at the hospital. Her unknown husband told about the incident to Iranian media in an interview. This is only one example of many.

We hope PMO’s Farsi speaking staff would be able to translate this article and read Dr. Ahmed Shaheed’s grave concerns in this regard.

You have stated numerous times during the election campaign and since the elections that you will listen to Canadians. I sincerely hope you not only listen but very seriously consider keeping the Iranian embassy from reopening.

For your information, that fourteen-year-old child-bride’s murderer is the criminal Islamic regime in Iran and their barbaric ideology and culture but sadly and regretfully, Mr. Justin Trudeau has promised the reopening of the murderers’ embassy in Canada, and plans to travel to Iran and have a dialogue with the terrorist regime of Iran. I find it appalling and against Canadian values.

Justin Trudeau: Canada’s Obama

In FrontPage today I explain why the next Prime Minister of Canada will get along fine with the President:

For years, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has served as a welcome counterpoint to Barack Obama, and the object of wistful musings about what a fine President of the United States he would have been, if only he had been born south of the border: generally realistic about the jihad threat, determined to do what was necessary to meet that threat, and a strong supporter of Israel.

But now Canada at last has its own Obama: Justin Trudeau. And that means that Canada, like the United States, faces deep trouble ahead.

The new Prime Minister of Canada, like Obama, has consistently downplayed the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat and ascribed it to other causes. Christine Williams, a Canadian journalist and a Federally appointed Director with the Canadian Race Relations Foundation, has noted that in the wake of the Boston Marathon jihad bombing, Trudeau issued a bizarre statement: “There is no question that this happened because of someone who feels completely excluded, someone who feels completely at war with innocence, at war with society.”

At war with innocence. That rivals the Obama Administration’s ascribing the Fort Hood jihad massacre to “workplace violence.” In reality, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev explained after the bombing that he and his brother committed murder at the Marathon because they wanted to defend Islam. Tamerlan Tsarnaev had vowed to die for Islam.

But – also like Obama – as far as Justin Trudeau is concerned, if you’re looking into Islam as having anything to do with jihad terror attacks, you’re looking in the wrong place. Williams notes that Trudeau in 2013 “came under fire for his participation in Canada’s largest Islamic Conference, held in Toronto, and entitled, ‘Reviving the Islamic Spirit.’ The criticism was over the conference’s sponsor, IRFAN [International Relief Fund for the Afflicted and Needy], which was stripped of its federal charity status because of its ties to the terrorist group, Hamas. Even the moderate Muslim Canadian Congress advised Trudeau not to attend.”

Did the Hamas links put Trudeau off? Not any more than the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ ties to Hamas stop American politicians – at least those on the Left – from appearing and glad-handing at its conferences. Trudeau,” Williams reports, “according to a report, smothered the Islamic conference in platitudes. He apparently went so far as to imply a totally inapt comparison in trying to liken the fierce division between English and French Canada, under Prime Minister Wilfrid Laurier, to that of the current divisions between mainstream Canada and Islam.”

Trudeau has been behaving this way for years. In 2011, he visited the Al-Sunnah Al-Nabawiah mosque in Montreal, which was identified by U.S. intelligence officials as a site where “known al-Qaeda members were recruited, facilitated or trained.”

What is a man like Justin Trudeau, with the kind of record that he has, likely to do as Prime Minister? Pamela Geller points out that he is already on record with some very specific intentions that should be disquieting to anyone interested in defending the West: “Canada,” Trudeau said in September, “must immediately accept 25,000 Syrian refugees We can expect the following from Justin Trudeau in the short term.” He didn’t say anything about trying to screen out jihadis from among them – if that were even possible.

Trudeau will also restore Canada’s diplomatic relations with Iran and end his country’s involvement in military operations against the Islamic State. He will doubtless aid Obama in pressuring Israel at the G8 summit, where Harper had stood in the President’s way. At home, Trudeau will scrap a bill that strips convicted terrorists of their Canadian citizenship, along with part of Canada’s counter-terror legislation.

In sum, Justin Trudeau, young, handsome, born to the scepter courtesy his father, will fit right in with Barack Obama, David Cameron and the other leaders of the Western world today. And that’s why we’re in the fix we’re in.
